Incense for Protection

Incense is a timeless tool for any spiritual practice. One of it’s most popular uses, is using incense for protection. It has been used since ancient times, throughout many of the worlds traditions for purification purposes. Incense is believed to cleanse and consecrate sacred spaces, removing negative energies and allowing the higher spiritual vibrations to flow in.

Incense is a simple and inexpensive way to enhance your spiritual practices and welcome protective, harmonious energies into your home. It comes in a variety of forms. Cone and stick incense are the most popular varieties. Cone incense tends to have a shorter burn time than stick incense and a more intense fragrance due to the higher concentration.

These incenses are often burned on hot coals inside a special incense burner with holes that allow for the careful release of the smoke. Resins are often used for rituals and to open the mind and enrich meditation practices.
